ZAGREB, May 18 (Xinhua) -- China and Croatia on Friday pledged to boost their parliamentary exchanges in a bid to promote bilateral ties.

The pledge was made during talks between visiting China's top legislator Wu Bangguo and Croatian Parliament Speaker Boris Sprem in Zagreb.

Wu, chairman of the Standing Committee of China's National People's Congress (NPC), arrived in Zagreb on Thursday, starting his six-day official goodwill visit to Croatia.

This is the first visit by a Chinese NPC Standing Committee chairman to Croatia within 12 years.

Wu suggested the two countries keep high-level visits and expand friendly exchanges between their parliaments to enhance mutual understanding.

The two sides should learn from each other on how to govern the state, develop the economy, raise people's living standards and improve democracy and the legal system, he said.
